Singapore’s importer of Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal is in the process of conducting a product recall, the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore said on Sunday (Jun 17).

The product recall follows an alert by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Thursday, saying that Kellogg Company was voluntarily recalling its 15.3 oz and 23 oz packages of Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal due to the potential presence of salmonella in the products.

The implicated product, Honey Smacks (15.3 oz), has a best before date from Jun 14, 2018 to Jun 14, 2019. Its UPC code, which is found on the bottom of the cereal box, is 038000391033.

AVA advised those who have purchased the affected product to not consume it. AVA added that consumers who are seeking a refund may contact Redmart Ltd.

Exceptional people: Singaporean wins top prize at Tokyo film festival

A wistful Singaporean short film about the loss of heritage, nostalgia and a young boy's sexual awakening bagged the top prize at an international film festival in Tokyo yesterday.

Benjamin's Last Day At Katong Swimming Complex, by Singaporean director Chai Yee Wei, won the Grand Prix award - now known as the George Lucas Award - at the Tokyo Short Shorts Film Festival and Asia 2018.

As this is one of the qualifying festivals for the Academy Awards, Benjamin's Last Day At Katong Swimming Complex will be eligible for nomination at next year's Oscars.

The 2016 Grand Prix winner, Sing, by Hungarian director Kristof Deak, went on to win Best Live Action Short Film at last year's Oscars.
